Verse of the Day, January 26, 2021
Jeremiah 29:11 KJV “For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.”
A word from GOD today is that the LORD knows the thoughts HE has towards HIS people. First, we should clarify the verse above to put in perspective the word from GOD today.
Jeremiah is in the final days of Jerusalem and he is in the city. He sent a letter to the residue of the elders who were carried away as captives to Babylon. He told the elders they would be there for 70 years.
Why? because the ALMIGHTY knows HIS thoughts towards them (the Judahites). HE has thoughts of peace and not evil and to provide them an expected end already written.
Essentially, they were there to serve their time for their sin. Then they will call upon the LORD and HE would hear, they will seek the LORD and find HIM when they seek with their whole heart.
The same can be and is done for all who seek the LORD in full sincerity; HE will hear us just as HE would HIS own people. Praise ye the LORD.
Praise the Most-High today!
